Hi World, Me and and my wife visited yercaud in the month of May 2016. some highlights of our 3 days tour. - Chennai to Yercaud on Maruti Ritz Vxi ABS took around 8 hours for around 400KM. - Expressway is like silk, car was vrooming at around 170km/hr which chokes car mileage to 7-8km/liter however it would be worth on such roads. -we didn't booked any hotel in advance (most of the time we never book any hotel until we are celebrating some special day) -I am too good in negotiating hotel rents so i would prefer face to face handling rather then earning goibio points. -so after reaching at the center of yercaud we had some hot drinks to release long driving state. -Locked car at the side of lake and did chit chat with locals and voila..got the deal. -AVR Hoilday inn was the property not a 5 star however not less than 3 star with nice services. - every commercial hotel booking site was displaying Rs.1800/night for this hotel and i got 1000/night. -So what my mind conclude lets make it 3 nights instead we planned for 2 nights earlier. -Property was neat and clean however some renovation was going on. -they have small kitchen for serving guests however you need to inform them before if you want food otherwise good restaurants are only 500 meters away. -yercaud climate was cloudy with misty rain and average temperature was about 22C. -Our main motive to visit yercaud was to relax and just relax with good food and drinks however you can visit some tourist places also which are very nice. -there is lot to write however now i am writing it through my office workstation (i have to do work also )so thinking pic=100 words, here we go.... -ohh just noticed i have only few pics in my mobile rest are in memory stick of DSLR ..will upload after some time.
